1)I m trying to change the Waja spark plug but could not get my 16mm
spark plug socket into the hole.There is only 21mm and 16mm spark plug
socket for most car.

Is Waja using 16mm socket wrench spark plug?... 15 mm ordinary socket can
go it but there is no 15mm 'spark plug socket'(mean tht extra long to
hold the tail of the plug)available for sale in the market.

2)how to unscrew those plastic screw on the radiator (on top of the
grill)? Using normal philips screwdriver the plastic screw thread easily
worn off.Is there special screwdiver for the plastic thing...thanks

ordinary spark plug socket can not use .. go to spare part shop where oil
stained poman usually frequent ... just ask spark plug socket to open
waja car spark plug sure the spare part shop know one .. it's a very thin
long socket costs cheaper the the ordinary one.. if want cheaper price
put some dirty oil on to your hands, a little on the face .. sure he will
give your special price (poman price)... he tot you also poman hehehe...
I always do that when buying spare part...

the plastic screw, just turn slowly, dun force downward, just layan it..
if still can not just force-lever out the head of the screw ...remember
the head of the screw ... once the screw is out then only you can lever
the other plastic part of the screw (the stud)... if rosak go and buy at
spare part shop, rm1 each ...

For the curiosity of other forummers, spark plug socket opener can be brought at lelong.com.my with the title " 1/2 DR Thin Wall Magnetic Sprak Plug Socket 16mm " [without the quote] from seller ehardwarestore. The keyword here is thin wall. This one suitable for Waja Mitsu engine with 16mm spark plug. Normal wall socket will not fit into Waja MMC engine.

 

The socket need to be attached with ratchet or T bar.

 

Don't buy those one piece spark plug opener that sold in supermarket/ hypermarket. It is useless and not enough torque to twist open the spark plug.
